Francois was welcoming and informative, and not imposing. There were two keys which was nice as it offered some flexibility in coming and going. We arrived, having flown in with kids, and were happy to see that it's not a cold, cramped appartement. It's max 10 minutes walk to princess street (e.g. the centre of Edinburgh), as well as to stockbridge with nice coffee and eating places.
Busses are the best way round Edinburgh, and nearly all of them stop within 2 min walk of the appartement.
The kitchen was too cramped for the 7 of us, and there is no dining room, so don't expect to be serving up grand dinners. (Eating out is the hint here..). There are a few open-late supermarket-ettes within a few meters of the place where you can get snacks and stuff up to 11 PM.
The beds are very firm, which can be to your liking or not, and the showers are not the most generous at dishing out warm water. However, everything is clean and works well.
We draped a sheet over the glass table in the living room as people kept walking into it. The TV in the picture has been replaced with a nice flatscreen, and the Internet is fast and reliable.
Most importantly, I got loads of compliments from the other guests about the place and location!
